Veteran Amitabh Bachchan recently shot for a cameo appearance in good friend and Chehre co-producer Anand Pandit’s upcoming Gujarati film Fakt Mahilao Mate (For ladies only) starring Yash Soni and Deeksha Joshi, and directed by Jay Bodas.

The iconic actor was more than willing to lend his time and energy to the project and accepted the role with great enthusiasm and was recently seen nailing the Gujarati diction in his signature baritone in a recording studio. He is also the sutradhaar (narrator) in the film, whose voice plays a critical role in the film’s progression, and so the dubbing session was long and extensive.

Anand Pandit says, “Amit-ji always brings a child-like energy to work. Even in a dubbing studio, he is full of joy and gives his all to every line, word and inflection. He has always been a master of long dialogues and to see him wrap up a long dubbing session with such passion and ease, and that too in Gujarati, was truly a humbling and inspiring experience.”

Jointly produced by Vaishal Shah, Fakt Mahilao Mate is as a family-centric comedy, releasing on August 19 this Janmashtami.

Bachchan has so far also done English (The Last Lear), Telugu (Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy), Marathi (AB Ani CD), Bhojpuri (Ganga Devi) films as well besides the Bengali version of his 1981 bi-lingual, Barsaat Ki Ek Raat (Anusandhan). In some of these languages, he has done more than one film.

He has also been narrator in innumerable movies, beginning with the 1972 Bawarchi and including the 2001 Lagaan.
